Methods: 3D motion capture data from walking and standing trials were analysed. Hip, knee, ankle and pelvis angles were calculated with inverse kinematics for both standing and walking trials. Hip, knee and ankle torques were calculated with inverse dynamics, while hip muscle and joint contact forces were calculated with static optimisation for the walking trials.
Results: No differences were found between the two groups while standing. While walking, patients showed decreased hip extension, increased ankle pronation and increased hip abduction and external rotation torques. Furthermore, hip muscle forces were generally lower and shifted to more posteriorly situated muscles, while the hip joint contact force was lower and directed more superiorly.
Conclusion: During walking, patients showed lower and more superiorly directed hip joint contact force, which might alleviate pain from an antero-superiorly degenerated joint.
